Exploring the Minnesota North Shore

The Minnesota North Shore is the expanse of coastline spanning over 150 miles that starts in Duluth and continues along Lake Superior into Ontario. Over 3 million people visit the Northshore every year, and it's not hard to see why. There are state parks, hiking trails, historical sites, and scenic towns all along the path that are great for any hiker, camper, or canoer to stop and explore. Be sure to make a day or weekend out of the experience, as it's easy to fall in love with the scenery, so packing smart is a must if you're going to stay a bit longer. Let's go over some of the sights that make the North Shore one of the best hiking trips you'll ever experience. 
Aside from the starting city of Duluth (which is a must-stop of course), there are dozens of spots to stop and enjoy the natural beauty of the state. The first major must-see is Two Harbors. At 24 miles from the start, Two Harbors features the only real working lighthouse on the North Shore. It also has the Sonju trail, which allows you to see an ore ship being loaded.
